Klopp was full of praise for United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a press conference after training.
Klopp said: ‘There is no doubt that he will be the manager next year as well, that’s clear.
‘Can you imagine one situation when they say “We are bringing in another manager?” Then a new manager will lose one game and that’s not possible.
